Vans, the famous surf and skating brand is holding the Us open of surfing at Huntington Beach which is due to get underway tomorrow morning (20th of July). Vans are bringing the surf, skate and hopefully sun to Huntington Beach, California and as per usual there is going to be a hopping party from the 20th to the 28th of July 2013. The skate park build has already begun and a Red Bull Stage which will feature artists such as Modest Mouse, The Faint, Twin Shadows as well as many more and is set to be the largest free concert of the year.

The Line up

The surf isn’t expect to be massive but is expected to be nice and clean so we should see some nice little airs and good banter between the competitors.

There are a total of 99 men competing all the way from Kelly slater to Jesse Mendes who only recently turned twenty. There are 19 women competing including the asp ranking champion Tyler Wright who is only 19 years old.

There is also a men’s junior and women’s junior category who are worth watching and I’m sure there will be a few who will blow the crowd away.

Why you should wear a Baja hoodie

Baja hoodies have been around for a long time, they are unique for their vintage look and their relaxed atmosphere created by their laid back ambience. There is something unique about this “hippie hoodie” that most other clothes don’t have. Because of it’s rarity and unusual  aspects the baja hoodie has started to creep back into the wardrobes of today’s youth. This versatile hoodie has many functions in everyday wear and as a new look at low key parties.

The general place to find Baja hoodies are similar places to beaches and Barbecue parties, places that are chilled out. Another great reason to wear a Baja hoodie is the surf style it creates. This hoodie is particularly popular among surfers and skaters alike and has always been a part of their community. The Baja hoodie is so versitile that there has always been a place for it in the fashion world especially now due to the recent vintage/ surfer craze. So to re-cap on the reason to get a Baja hoodie – relaxed,vintage, surfer style – perfect in many different social situations & always seems to have a spot light on it. I’m sure there are more reasons but this is enough for me for the time being!
